The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department said a bat researcher skilled at caving helped rescue an injured man from a cave in Weybridge last week. The department said Joel Flewelling was among the first rescuers to reach the man, who had fallen and broken his ankle on Aug. 6. Flewelling is a volunteer for Vermont Cave Rescue Network, a group of cavers who are experienced at safely navigating the state’s caves. The man was pulled to safety after spending 14 hours in the cave, which is believed to be the largest in Vermont.
